Gala Bingo makes a house call at the London City Airport Fun Day

18/06/2008

If you hear the words two fat ladies, legs eleven and droopy drawers being called at the Fun Day don’t be alarmed as they are just bingo number nicknames. Gala Bingo will be running bingo sessions throughout the afternoon at Fun Day. No money will change hands - all of the sessions are free and the lucky winners will receive one of a selection of fantastic prizes.

The Fun Day is free to enter and this year the majority of the attractions are either free or just £1, making the afternoon accessible and affordable for everyone to enjoy. As if free entry, free bingo and other free attractions weren’t enough, the airport is also providing a free Shuttle Bus Service to get you there!  The free shuttle bus service will be running to get you to and from Fun Day. There are two routes available (red and yellow) with buses running every 15 minutes from 2:15pm. The last bus service will leave London City Airport at 8pm
